You Know It’s A Bad Day

Posted: June 7, 2010 in Disney, Paris

Alright, so when I went through Lifeguard training in January, one of our trainers had this wonderful little saying. Basically she’d explain a scenario, and whenever she explained how the scenario could go wrong, she’d finish it with ‘and that’s a bad day..’ so, this is my little list of bad day things, which have happened (or almost happened) to me or people I know. Enjoy, and please feel free to add your own ‘You know it’s a bad day when..’ in the comments!

You know it’s a bad day when the monorail doors almost close on you.

You know it’s a bad day when you can smell a Code V/Protein Spill in your area.

You know it’s a bad day when a mother takes off her child’s lifejacket and says ‘you don’t need that anymore Billy/Bobby/Jackie etc’.

You know it’s a bad day when you slip and fall into the pool whilst on stand.

You know it’s a bad day when there are more than 5 people already on the ER (Early Release) list.

You know it’s a bad day when Ellis are around.

You know it’s a bad day when your bus doesn’t turn up until 5 minutes before your shift is due to start.

You know it’s a bad day when your bus driver starts talking about the ‘werewolf court’ he belongs to..

You know it’s a bad day when it takes you an hour to get to the Post Office.

You know it’s a bad day when you work a PM until 11.30pm, don’t get home until midnight and then the following day work an AM beginning at 8AM for which you need to get up at 6AM.

You know it’s a bad day when you can’t get a seat on the rush hour train, and you’re standing next to someone who smells like a decomposing body.

You know it’s a bad day when you have 2 presentations tomorrow, and neither of them are quite finished yet..

You know it’s a bad day when there’s a guy yelling in the metro and slamming himself against the wall, but all you’re worried about is that he’s slamming himself into the wall right in front of the exit you want to use.

To be continued!!
